committee. you're talking about the debt ceiling debate. wall street journal says that president obama has escalated the fight. let me show you a little of what he said. [video clip] >> if congressional republicans refuse to pay america's bills on time, social security checks and veterans' benefits will be delayed. we might not be able to pay our troops or honor our contracts with small business owners, food inspectors, air traffic controllers, specialists who track down loose nuclear materials would not get their paychecks, investors around the world will ask if the united states of america is a safe bet. markets could go haywire. interest rates would spike for anyone who borrows money. every homeowner with a mortgage, every student with a college loan, every small business owner who wants to grow. host: your reaction? guest: first, thanks for having me on the show, greta. i have owned the business over 20 years as an entrepreneur, have been looking at budgets for over 30 years. even now, as a businessman who has had a season of public- service, i have 150 employees in virginia. so this i
